** There are [[LightNovel/PocketMonstersTheAnimation two novels]] by Takeshi Shudo, a major writer for the anime, that give [[http://cindysuke.tumblr.com/post/34817930237/the-facts-about-pokemon-world-lol insight into]] [[http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f313/world-according-takeshi-shudo-15688/ the world.]] It tells us stuff like what happened to Ash's father, Brock's siblings are only his half-siblings, and that ten-year-olds are legal adults (they can get arrested, they have to pay taxes, [[{{Squick}} they can get married...]]). A lot of the info isn't canon nowadays but it does make sense in the Kanto days, like how Officer Jenny was able to jail a bunch of kids so easily.

* The ''VideoGame/SakuraWars'' {{OAV}}s and movie are based on (and mostly continuations of) the games. Somehow America got the former without the latter.

*** Curiously, though the new Chronicles share many major points of info with the PS2 Game, they curiously completely ignore all references to a certain group of Secret Benefactors that don't ever show up within the Anime at all. In combination with Gainax's OFFICIAL stance on the Game being that "All plot details were made specifically" for the Game, it's possible we got Retconning Manuals on our hands here.

** Essentially the only way to even ''try'' to make sense of ''NGE'''s plot is to look at the "classified files" in the spin-off game for the {{PlayStation 2}}, which was coincidentally [[NoExportForYou never released in the States]].

* The supplementary manga and Sound Stages of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' explains how Nanoha learned the Bind spell during her battle with Fate, who that Linith woman was in the LotusEaterMachine, what the heck happened to Arf in the third season and what that gift from Reinforce that Vita was talking about was.
** The supplementary files also contain a fair amount of information on the plot. Not only does the ''AudioPlay/StrikerSSoundStageX'' explain how many of the spells work, but it also provides information such as how the [=N2R=] [[SiblingTeam squad]] [[LineOfSightName got its name]], and specific information on the long-standing consequences of [[spoiler:Teana's partner [[DetectiveMole being outed as the real killer]] in the Mariage case]].

* In ''Anime/CuteHighEarthDefenseClubLove'', this is downplayed with Tazawa's first name (Masuya), and Tazawa only comes into the story at episode 5 of 12. The manga plays this straight regarding some of the villainous trio backstory (e.g. how Kinshiro and Arima met).
